Thanks for your encouraging words on my previous post :)
I’m starting this year with the group show “Format Raisin” at @galerie_mathgoth in Paris this Friday. I’m happy to be part of it with these great artists! It feels especially nice to have my works next to the @herakut duo and @case_maclaim who have been role models for me as a young writer lots of years ago. Cheers :)
2016 was a special year. I spent a lot more time on my artwork than before, and got the chance to realize some amazing projects that I have wanted to do for a long time. I love it and have been full of joy when I get to paint, but it has also been my most difficult year emotionally. Between projects when I have not been high on life by painting, I have had a lot of time where I’ve been very down and struggled to find motivation. I’ve said it earlier, and these highlights tells another story of my life, but it is only a small part that I share on social media. Life is not easy, and not for me either. I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has encouraged me to focus on my painting and helped me do what I have done, everyone that has supported me or given me opportunities, all who have said such nice things and told me how they feel about my paintings, and the people around me who motivated me to do things when I’ve hesitated. Thank you <3
Thank you so much everyone who picked up my print! =) It was a beautiful morning when today's shipment went away. So happy to see many of them go far away from Sweden as well. There are only a few pieces left, some of which will go to charity auctions later on.
Online now! Thank you so much everyone that already ordered one <3. There has been some problems with PayPal checkouts tonight. I'm very sorry about that and there is now another option to checkout.
A lot of work went in to this one and it’s finally ready. “Reincarnation” is my new print edition.
It will be available tomorrow Thursday Dec 8th 18:00 (CET) at my site. Link in profile. It’s a 50x70 cm giclée print in a limited edition of 75 on 308 gsm Hanhemühle paper.
There will also be a large scale format edition of 20.
I don’t usually like to talk about my motives too much, but this one is based on the life of an artist I got to know this year. A daughter and a father who never got the chance to say goodbye.

Okay finally! Here's a quick peak on something I've spent a lot of time working on recently. It's my new print edition that will be available in December. No final date set yet, but very soon. More info will come. Sign up for my newsletter to get notified before. Link in profile.
Full video on my site or facebook. Links in profile. Thank you everyone for the positive feedback on my latest wall in Edsbyn. My good friend @martinstenmark , who was with me documenting the process, has put together a very nice video from the making.
If anyone know the taxi driver who stopped and helped us with the fire on the way home, please give him a big hug from us. We are very thankful for his help, but never got his name.
Here's part of a nice little video @fatnfrsh put together for @artscape_festival about my visit in Filipstad. It was hard to find a title that would tell everything I wanted to say with this wall. I hope the story and values shows through. Thanks everyone =)
Another photo that shows how it fits in the surrounding a bit better. "Slowing Down" for @artscape_festival in
for @artscape_festival .This has been the most difficult surface to paint so far, but thanks to the nice people of Filipstad and the best Artscape crew I had a great time! Thanks everyone, It’s been a pleasure =)
Hey! I've been keeping a really low profile for some time because of life being life. Will probably write something about that later on.. but for now I'm happy to say I will be back at this years @artscape_festival :)

"Making Friends" Final shot of the wall. I've spent the past week painting this in
. It's been pretty cold, but lots of fun! Thanks everyone for taking such good care of us :) I've had a very pleasant stay even though our lift caught fire on the way home and your firemen had to come save us. Thanks! Looking forward to see the building finished with the greenery around it.
"Where Trees Don't Grow". Final shot of my finished wall in Gothenburg for @artscape_festival . I've been dreaming of painting a wall like this since I was a kid. Thanks for making it possible! :) It's been a pleasure! <3
